    I ended up with this little chick from a mixed box of breeds from a local nursery/city farm store. The clerk wasn't 100% sure what it was, but was thinking polish or silkie frizzle. I have never raised a polish or a silkie so I really have no idea. I'm thinking a cross maybe? Thoughts? I'm hoping for a female either way.

    The extra toe leans towards either silkie ancestry or houdan. And with lack of leg feathering, I would say a houdan would be more likely. But hard to say for sure exactly what it is, might need to let it grow out, and see what shape it has to give more clues.

    Thank you. I ended up with a pair of EE's and two breeds I have never raised before. This one, which I named Carlotta, and 3 penedesenca chicks.
